DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. – Two teens were killed and six others were wounded when shots were fired at a suburban Atlanta house party on Saturday, authorities said.
The shooting occurred at about 11 p.m. EST at a residence in Douglasville, located about 20 miles west of Atlanta, WSB-TV reported.
According to a news release from the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, more than 100 teenagers were at the party when “a confrontation” occurred. It was unclear what prompted the shooting.
Capt. Trent Wilson of the sheriff’s office told The Associated Press that the two teens who were killed were under 18 years old.
It was unclear whether there were any adults present at the time of the shooting.
“My child is traumatized. Her friends are traumatized. I am traumatized,” a parent of one of the teens wrote in a social media post, according to the television station.
According to the sheriff’s office, the incident “is still a very active investigation.”
“No arrests have been made and it is unclear whether more than one person did the shooting, the AP reported.
“Information is very limited at this time,” the sheriff’s office said. “Our investigators have worked all night and are still there looking for answers.”
